Fergie's National Anthem from the NBA All-Star game will forever live in infamy.

But now it shall no longer live alone.


Fergie's version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" was notable for its jumping to several different keys, odd riffs and pitch choices, rhythms that made no sense—you name it, and it was there.

To be fair, Francis Scott Key borrowed the music for his lyrics from an 18th century drinking song that touted imbibing heavily and engaging in lots of sex so...

...it's an interesting tune.

Two years later, at the same game, singer Chaka Khan said:

"Fergie, hold my beer!"

Once again, the key seemed to change every measure.

Riffs were thrown in where riffs never were before. As one Twitter user stated, the "I'm Every Woman" singer seemed to have every single woman at once vying for a spot in her National Anthem.

Others are wondering whether or not Fergie and Chaka Khan conspired before the airing, giving each other tips on how to sing the music.





Others really just can't believe this happened twice at the same event.





And honestly, who was watching the game after this instead of howling on Twitter about that moment?





Magic Johnson actually praised the new rendition:


But most were of the opposite point of view.

Safe to say whoever is in charge of booking the National Anthem singers for the NBA All-Stars games may not have a job come 2021.

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
